Days after the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) announced that the geo-tagging of properties will be mandatory to avail property tax exemption
Heavy rains lashed Delhi on Thursday afternoon as the weather turned for the better bringing respite to the people from the sweltering heat. Just after 3 pm, the national capital and adjoining areas were battered by strong winds accompanied by very heavy downpour.
The rains caused traffic jams at some places in the capital. Many were seen scrambling for shelter as the rains came down heavily on the city.
Interestingly, the India Meteorological Department had not mentioned Delhi or West Uttar Pradesh in its weather warning bulletin for 5 July in which it predicted heavy rains, thundershowers and strong winds in parts of the northeast, central, western and southern India.
